Re: SEUS

Sony Ericsson can't do that because of their contracts / agreements with different carriers. If you choose to debrand the phone in order to install different software, that's entirely up to you...

Re: SEUS

As long as you have an unbranded rom it would do the same thing it does for everyone else...install official SE firmware.

If you have an AT&T branded rom it won't do anything because there's no update available still.

Re: SEUS

Seriously Lightyear what does it do? Is there some kind of error message? It seems to me the device is turned off when you flash with SEUS

Re: SEUS

Hello, Sony Ericsson Update Service will update your phone using branded firmware, the phone seems like it is switched off but it is on in a certain way, Flash Mode which allows the phone to be accessed for flashing firmware,

Re: SEUS

so... you're saying that SEUS can tell somehow that it's branded and no way to get global like I can with my unlocked and unbranded rom?

Re: SEUS

This whole thing about SE having a contract with ATT shouldn't be an issue after final sale and the device now belongs to someone. I don't get it. There would sure be less complaining around here if you could put an unlock/debrand option in SEUS

Re: SEUS

So it's really some kind of legal problem? I just can't lend that much competence to att to even formulate a credible complaint if SE were to provide the option of unbranding and using Global. I been to a couple County fairs and a goat roping contest and ain't never seen nothing like this!

Re: SEUS

You'd be surprised how smart they are when they want to be sneaky and give their customers the shaft, bro.  I know you will remember you didn't have the option to install non-market apps until you debranded.  They will do anything they can to keep their customers on a leash.  But of course, you know this already, as well

Re: SEUS

You assume too much I am just now getting my biker pea brain around the whole problem. SE could sack up without publicity in my opinion and provide that option and I bet ATT could care less. Weren't you they one claiming ATT doesn't even sell the x10?
